  Headington Hall

The University of Oklahoma's Board of Regents today (March 24, 2011) approved the conceptual design for the $75 million Headington Hall, which will house almost 400 students with both student athletes (49%) and students (51%) who are not participating in intercollegiate athletics.
 
The new facility, which will replace Bud Wilkinson Hall, will be funded by the department of intercollegiate athletics, which has launched a campaign to raise the private funding portion of the project cost.
 
Fans interested in learning more about contributing to this facility should contact the Sooner Club at (405) 325-8000 or toll-free at (866) Sooner Club.
 
The 230,000 square foot housing center, which will be located on the corner of Jenkins and Lindsey, southeast and across the street from the football stadium, will have 392 beds in two- and four-bedroom units. The building will include central dining, computer labs and study rooms as well as a Faculty-in-Residence unit.
 
"We are grateful to President David Boren and the OU Board of Regents for their leadership and support of a project that will benefit our students for generations to come," said Joe Castiglione, OU's Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics and Athletics Director.
 
"This impressive housing project will be consistent with the architecture of our beautiful campus and will provide a state-of-the-art housing facility for hundreds of students.
 
"In addition, it will present prospective student-athletes with a facility that will rival any of its peers nationally," Castiglione said.
